Online Check Acceptance for Government Departments
Our Vcheck secure online check acceptance system is well suited for state, county, and city size government departments. It allows you to offer your citizens the convenience of paying bills online they have come to expect - without burdening them with the outrageous extra convenince fees that some companies charge for handling such payments by credit card or check.
In California, our Vcheck system is currently used by the Los Angeles County Treasurer & Tax Collector, Department of Public Works and Business Licence Departments. Also included are the Nevada County Treasurer & Tax Collector, Building Permits and Sheriff's Department Search and Rescue Departments. The Shasta County Treasurer & Tax Collector and Department of Public Works also use our system.
Our Vcheck / Echeck system can be used for any type of payment - property taxes, water bills, licences, traffic tickets - any bill a check can be written for can be processed quickly and easily through our system.
For smaller state, county and city departments who do not have in-house IT resources, Vcheck is the perfect solution. Everything is handled by our secure, dedicated servers. All you have to do is link to your custom online check form from your website. Or, using the built-in support for special pre-forms and data post-backs, we can work with you to greatly automate and fine-tune the payment process. We've been providing Internet software solutions since 1996 and can provide you with additional website or back-end programming expertise.
You can test out the actual system by going to the Live Demo page, reading the short instructions, and using the links under the Government Agencies / Departments section of that page.
From Mark Saladino, Treasurer and Tax Collector of Los Angeles County:
I am writing to tell you how pleased I am with your Virtual Check application, and how much I appreciate your support and commitment to customizing Virtual Check to meet our unique needs.
If Los Angeles County were a state it would be the 9th most populous, and our enormous size and transaction volumes pose equally enormous challenges whenever we develop a new system or service. Despite those challenges, Virtual Check performed perfectly even during our peak property tax collection period. We have heard nothing but compliments from our constituents, and we are thrilled to be able to offer them such a convenient, secure and reliable online payment method.
Virtual Check has been a tremendous success for us, and it is serving the people of Los Angeles County very well ... I wholeheartedly endorse it!

Please add my comments to your testimonial site, where satisfied customers have praised you and your company.
I have worked with back-end programmers for 29 years. I respect their talents and how they make the mainframe operate as it does. However, you have been a total delight to work with. You accepted my requests for modifications without any resistance. In fact, if you remember correctly, I had to *make* you take payment for those modifications.
I wish that ALL of corporate America could know you. I wish they knew how much it means to have a "satisfied" customer. Most corporations only see dollar signs when they see customers. You are an example that surpasses them all.
If you need me for a reference, please don't hesitate to give anyone my name and e-mail address, and telephone number. Day or night, I will be honored to quash any fears anyone may have about doing business with your company. What a beautiful surprise the newer customers will have.
-E. CHRISTINA DABIS, Treasurer & Tax Collector, County of Nevada, State of California
